Here is the deal, I was driving along Bay Street just about to hit Bloor, I mistakingly wasn't paying attention to the sign (but who really looks for illegal right turns anyway??). I made a right onto bloor during the wrong times. There was a sign that said, no right turn 7am-7pm mon-friday.
My friend told me something crazy that all canadian traffic signs MUST be written in both french and english and that I could get off based on this simple rule. Does this have any validity? I do recognize how silly it sounds.
I am going to court, pleading guilty with an explanation, but I guess I don't really have a good explanation (other than the fact that I thought it was a saturday because i had the day off from work so it felt like a weekend - sign only said no turns mon-fri).
Please help, I really don't want points for this.
But you will get point for that, after all rules are rules, sorry to say but they seem silly when they come on our self.
Shelby, it's not a silly law at all. Your friend is 100% correct, so do not plead guilty, plead not guilty but make sure the sign is in fact not in French and English.
